By Hannah Arendt

Essere fedeli alla realtà delle cose, nel bene e nel male, implica un integrale amore in keeping with l. a. verità e una totale gratitudine in line with il fatto stesso di essere nati.
 
Una donna è fra i più grandi pensatori del Novecento. in line with Hannah Arendt, los angeles riflessione filosofica sull’esistenza è un pensiero secondo, vale a dire che esso deve essere secondo los angeles realtà e venire dopo ciò che l’esperienza suggerisce agli uomini. Dallo stupore e non dal dubbio procede los angeles conoscenza. L’esperienza chiarisce all’uomo los angeles stoffa di cui è fatto e il senso delle sue aspirazioni. Questa raccolta di brani della pensatrice tedesca allieva di Heidegger. Un modo adeguato, anche in line with i non addetti ai lavori, in step with avvicinarsi a una delle voci più brillanti e contro corrente del pensiero contemporaneo.
